Step 1: If you are using an old bird cage, make sure to clean it thoroughly with disinfectant. Remove any rust and paint it well with the color that best suits the color scheme of your garden.

Step 2: Reinforce the cage and tighten any screw because it will become heavy once soil and plants are inside.

Step 3: Now line the cage with coco liner or moss. It’s important to line the cage nicely to stop soil from spilling out of the cage. Or you can place a container of similar size in a birdcage. Putting a container will make the work easy and your cage won’t rust faster.

Step 4: Mix slow release fertilizer and water retaining granules in potting mix and fill it in the 1/4 of the birdcage.

Step 5: As our planter is shallow you’ll need to break the rootball of plants you’re planting, after this clear space in the soil and place your plants gently.

Step 6: Finding a right spot to hang your birdcage planter is important. Fix it where it will become a focal point of your garden, in a less windy spot. If it’s large or shaky put it on a tabletop or chair.

And your garden is surely going to look even more beautiful than before! 🙂
